ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONARY'S REPORT 1965-66 

The year 1965-66 has been a busy and challenging one for me. Not onl 
have I visited all the churches at least twice during the year but have had thl 
opportunity of preaching and teaching in many of the churches. With from 
five to nine of our churches being without pa-stors during the year, I have 
met with Pulpit Committees supplying them with the pamphlet "When a 
Church is Seeking a Pastor" and assisting them in various ways. In June 
and September 1 assisted two churches that are without a pastor with their 
visitation during their revivals. This was not only helpful to the churches 
but helpful to the Missionary in getting to know the menabers of the churche 
It was also a revelation to learn of the potential of these churches. 

The Seminary Extension Center this year was in Southern Pines with 13 
and women attending. This is a wonderful opportunity for both pastors and 
laity (men and women) to study and prepare for greater service in the 
churches. I trust more pastors will see the worth of these courses and urg 
their members to enroll. The next Seminary Extension courses will be off 
ed January 9-March 6, 1967, at the Carthage Baptist Church. 

The Five-Year Spiritual Growth Program has been started in four 
churches thus far, and other churches are interested in learning more about 
the program. The next Five-Year Spiritual Growth Clinic will be held the 
31st of October in Carthage. We believe this to be one of the best means of 
examining whereyour church IS at the present time, look at yourself objec- 
tively, set goals, and to urge you to "press toward the mark" which Christ 
would have your church to attain. 

The work at Morrison Training School has again been challenging, as 
well as inspiring. Your missionary has charge of Vespers every first Sun- 
day of the month at 9 A. M. , Bible Study every first and third Tuesday night ( 
the month, and goes for counselling at least once or twice a month. Your 
Association sponsored a Vacation Bible School at Morrison with 104 boys 
volunteering to attend for the five days. On the last day of the School, 52 
boys made commitments for Christ. Your missionary has been teaching 
them the book on THE NEW LIFE. I am grateful to Rev. Max Gilmore, Fred: 
Richardson, James Daves, Coy Frye, Rodney Ludney for their help in the 
Vacation Bible School. 

We are glad to welcome into our Association the following pastors: Rev. 
Johnfiie Hooks, PineyWood; Rev. Wilfred Powers, New Home; Rev. James 
Daves, Ives Memorial; Rev. William Hancock, Flint Hill; Rev. Grover Vaughii 
Colonial Heights; Rev. Bobby Moore, Fairview; and Mr. Art Greene, Ministe 
of Religious Education of the First Baptist Church, Aberdeen, Rev. J.C. 
Bennett, West End, & Rev. D.Hall, Palmair. 

The great need of our churches is for more trained leadership, and we 
trust the Associational leaders in all departments will be able to assist all 
churches this coming year in this task. Please feel free to contact the 
leaders or myself and we shall be glad to help your church leaders and 
teachers. 

May I take this opportunity to thank each of you who have supported, witF 
your time, financial help, and prayers the Associational program of the past 

- 6 - 



ar and especially thank the Promotional and Executive Committee mem- 
rs'for their cooperation, inspiration, and suggestions. Our task is to work 
aether in promoting God's rule in the hearts of each member of the Associa- 
Tn and for the extension of that rule in the hearts of men and women, boys 
d eirls around the world. May we take seriously this task, realizing that 
ly as we cooperate with each other, seeking the Holy Spirit to lead and guide 
will we be able to accomplish that for which God has chosen us. 
Respectfully submitted, Michael Ray

STEWARDSHIP PROMOTION REPORT ' 

A pressing need of each church in our Association is an undergirding of 
the Cooperative Program with prayer. Information on the world wide mis- 
sionary work carried on through the Cooperative Program will form the 
basis by which your church can pray with knowledge and zeal. 

Today we are witnessing the greatest missionary advance in Southern 
Baptist history in missionaries being sent, benevolent work done and train- 
ing young people for world wide service. This advance is being made 
through your missionaries, school orphanages, homes for the aged, and our 
Baptist Hospitals. Through the Cooperative Program you literally feed the 
hungry, clothe the nakes, heal the sick, and preach the gospel to the far 
corners of the earth. Each year more of our churches are increasing Co- 
operative Program giving and at the same time others are beginning to 

- 8 - 



participate whole heartely. Several associations in North Carolina have -'? 

.00% of their churches giving through the Cooperative Program. According b 
_o available records our Association gave approximately $10, 176. 94 for the 
jirst six months of 1966. Ten churches have given nothing thus far, but we 
rust they too will begin to participate in this worthy Program. 
We recommend: 

1. That every church plan a stewardship program to subscribe and 
horoughly promote the church's budget. 

2. That we engage regularly in prayer for Cooperative Program causes 
ind give special emphasis to prayer for these needs during the OCTOBER 
:OOPERATIVE PROGRAM PRAYER EMPHASIS. 

3. That the churches give regularly through the Cooperative Program. 

4. That the churches give regularly to the Associational Missions, and 
hat each church will increase their amount as much as possible. 

Respectfully submitted, Charles Moseley 

Chairman of Stewardship Promotion 

Mrs. Gilmore led the group in singing "Rescue the Perishing". 
A discussion of State Missions was presented by the following on a 
)anel: 

Frank Dennis, Baptist Hospital; Ray Hodge, Biblical Recorder; Henry 
arker, Institutional Missions; Mrs. P. Greenlee, Baptist Foundations; Mrs. 
ennon, N.C. Baptist Homes; and Mr. and Mrs. Sisk, N.C. Baptist Children' s 
omes. 

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOMES FOR THE AGING 

Reflection ok the past year of life in our four Baptist Homes for the 
|A.ging is a reminder once again of the goodness of the Lord to us. During 
Ithis time we have ministered to 172 deserving older men and women. All 
of these have been blessed by the love of North Carolina Baptist, through 
pur share in the Cooperative Program. The large majority, at least 85%, 
\have benefitted directly from these gifts and have actually been sustained at 
the point of their financial need. The Special Day offering for 1966 is at an 
pill time high and looks as if it might be $100, 000. 00 for the first time. 
This is very good, and we are profoundly grateful. 

i We are in the midst of miracles, and the past year has been one in 

which we have witnessed unusual blessings from the Lord. There have been 
ifewer deaths than previously, and the critically ill, in many instances, have 
been brought back to a measure of reasonably good health. Nursing care 
(has been of the highest quality, and you would rejoice to know now far your 
oncern and your gifts go in ministering to the needs of residents, particular- 
y at the point of tender loving care in illness. 

It is anticipated that construction will begin on the fifth Home at Yancy- 
ille during the coming year, and when it is completed, we will be able to 
inister in all of our Homes to 200 older men and women and relieve, in 
easure, the terrific pressure of a long waiting list of 170 people. 

This ministry of love, in Christ's name, is dependent upon the concern, 
the love, the prayers, and the increased financial support of North Carolina 
Baptist. We are, therefore, going to count heavily on you and believe that 
you will not disappoint the aging people who are looking to you urgently for 
help. 

Respectfully submitted, William Poole, General Superintendent. 

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST FOUNDATION 

This has been a good year in Baptist Foundation work and we are eter- 
nally grateful to each one of you for having a part in promoting the work. 

We are indeed grateful to the pastors of this state for the wonderful 
jcooperation they have accorded the Baptist Foundation. They have encouraged 
jUS greatly by furnishing the names of individuals who may be interested in the 



- 9 - 



Foundation; they have invited us to their church to speak on various occas- 
sions; they have been most generous with their time in discussing -with us the 
problems, programs, and purposes of the Foundation whenever we had the 
opportunity to discuss it with them. Many of our lay friends, lawyers, banki 
trust officers, and other interested individuals have given of their time and 
have helped us materially in promoting our work. 

Assets of the Foundation have increased during the past year to approxi- 
mately one million dollars, including our real estate. Many of our people 
are setting up memorial funds, trust agreerpents, annuity agreements, and 
are using other services provided by the Foundation. We believe we are 
organized in such a manner that we can answer most any request an in- 
dividual makes of us, either through the church or as an individual, if he 
will make his wishes known to us. By this I mean that we can visit him in- 
dividually and explain the work of th^ Foundation and how he may participate 
in it, or we can go to any group meeting that would provide an opportunity 
to discuss Will Making and uses of the Foundation. We covet your continued 
prayers for this work and hope in the future you will make use of the faciliti< 
of The North Carolina Baptist Foundation, 

Respectfully submitted, C. Gordon Maddrey, Executive Sec'y 

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 

Under the impact of the life, ministry and teachings of Christ and under 
the leadership of the Holy Spirit, North Carolina Baptist, eighty-one years 
ago launched a Christian ministry of child care. This has grown consider- 
ably and is widely recognized for its qualities of service and pioneering 
spirit. Sons and daughters of the Children's Homes are scattered through- 
out the world. They are actively engaged in all walks of life and are making 
a significant contribution to the uplift of mankind as a result of their early 
Christian training made possible by North Carolina Baptist and other friends 

As we continue to build upon foundations already laid, special attention 
is being given certain areas of child care. An already strong program of 
group care is being strengthened at Mills Home, Kennedy Home and Odum 
Home. A good degree of progress has been realized in working with emotio 
ally disturbed children at Greer Home in Chapel Hill. The demonstration 
Child Development Program for preschool children, conducted on the Mills 
Home campus, has had an excellent first year operation. Prospects are 
encouraging for a home for children in the western part of the state more 
adequately to serve the needs of our people who live west of the Blue Ridge 
Mountains. Constant attention is being given to more effective ways of meet 
ing the highly specialized needs of children coming out of broken and in- 
adequate home situations. 

We have a large number of good Christian homes for the care of foster 
children. More are needed in all sections of the state. Foster homes serv( 
children of all ages and are of particular advantage for some who have speci 
needs. Couples with or without children of their own who have an abundance 
of love find this to be a challenging and rewarding opportunity of Christian 
service. 

Sincere appreciation is expressed to all who have, in any way, helped t( 
support our child care ministry. We are indeed grateful for increasing in- 
come through the Cooperative Program. Last year's Thanksgiving Offering 
is approaching three hundred fifteen thousand dollars, and is the largest eve 
Special gifts and designations such as the Once-a-month offering continue to 
provide a substantial part of our income. Through estate planning and mak- 
ing of Christian wills an increasing number of individuals and families are 
investing in present and future generations of boys and girls who are in need 
of the services of the Baptist Children's Homes. Roger Williams, former 
pastor of the Mills Home Baptist Church, is devoting full time to working 
with our Baptist people in this area, and he or other members of our staff 
will count it a privilege to assist you in exploring this field of Christian 
stewardship. 



We covenant with you to face the future as we have the past: to offer 
Christian nurture to distressed children in the name of the Lord Jesus 
hrist. 

Respectfully submitted. Dr. W. R, Wagoner , General Supt. 

THE BIBLICAL RECORDER'S REPORT 

Many important issues are facing North Carolina Baptist. Churches 
ire making decisions on the Life and Work Curriculum, especially whether 
o use the Life and Work Sunday School lessons or the Uniform Lessons. 
I'or a period of at least six months, the RECORDER will run both lessons as 
V service to our churches. 

Changing conditions are causing us to raise serious questions about the 
ate of almost every institution we support, and in the near future Baptist will 
lave to decide the future courses in higher education and in our Social 
service institutions, especially in view of increased government participation 
n these areas. The RECORDER will present the issues and possible choices 
)pen to us. Also the RECORDER will give on-the-spot coverage to the 
iquor-by-the-drink proposal that will come before the 1967 General Assem- 
)ly. Baptist need to be informed about this and other issues and you get it 
ill in the RECORDER. 

Place a RECORDER in the home of every family of your church. Your 
hurch will be stronger if you do. 

Respectfully submitted, J. Marse Grant, Editor 

N. C. BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

Our Baptist Hospital and Medical School are a center of healing for 

S>ody, mind and spirit, a center of training of medical personnel and Chris- 
ian workers, and a center of scientific research for the advancement of 
Imedical care. 

Without a vast amount of medical research, there would be no heart 
urgery today by which lives are saved in our Baptist Hospital almost every 
|veek; and the same would be true of almost every new method of treating 
lis when we are sick. Without schools for the training of doctors, nurses, 
itechnicians and others, there soon would be no skilled persons in our hos- 
^Jitals or in our communities to care for us when illness comes. Without a 
l^taff of highly trained and experienced specialist and a vast amount of ex- 
pensive specialized equipment, our Baptist Hospital could not offer the skill- 
ed medical care which is available to us when serious illness strikes and a 
fine medical center is needed. Another very important fact is that the 
killed medical care of our Hospital is made available to people who need it 
nd cannot pay for it. These important services are the work of our Medical 
enter in Winston-Salem. 

The kind of medical care provided by our Hospital is very expensive, 
nd the Hospital has no choice but to ask full payment of all who can pay. 
[The Hospital has been spending in free care for our people far more than it 
jreceives from our Mother's Day Offerings, the Cooperative Program, and 
all welfare agencies combined. This has caused the Hospital to run into 
debt the past two years and the same has been happening this year. Of course, 
ithe Hospital simply cannot continue to operate this way. Medicare is not 
going to change the situation greatly. Our people need to understand this 
and to recognize that we are going to have to provide much greated support 
if the Hospital is to continue to provide free service in the same measure 
for those who cannot pay for it. 

We trust you will return to your churches and give them this informa- 
tion and lead them to give serious consideration to the Hospital's vital min- 
istry and its urgent need. 

Respectfully submitted, Dr. W. K. McGee, Director

ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONARY'S REPORT 1966-67 

This year I would like to deviate from the "usual" kind of report and 
instead tell something about the different kinds of ministries your Associ 
ation offers. If any church would like for me to speak in your church 
concerning the ministries a phone call will be appreciated. 

MINISTRY OF FELLOWSHIP: Through the Association men, women 
boys and girls are bound together by common ties of belief, tradition, 
cooperate responsibility and love. We realize this Ministry of Fellowship at : 
Associational Meetings. . . Executive Committee, Rallies, Clinics and Annual 
Acsociational Meetings. Through the years we have been bound together by 
the bond of Christian Fellowship. ..through getting together, working together 
and praying together. 

MINISTRY OF PREACHING: During the past year the missionary has 
had the privilege of preaching in all but two churches of the Association. He 
has taken his time of preaching on Radio Station WEEB as well as speaking 
at other Associational meetings, camps and assemblies. 

TEACHING MINISTRY: Besides teaching Sunday School often in the 
churche.-^, your missionary has taught several Study Courses and the January^ 
Bible Study. There were 14 persons enrolled in the Seminary Extension 
Course this past January with Rev. James Daves teaching. The coming 
School of Missions will be an opportunity to study missions: Associational, 
State, Hoine and Foreign. 

TRAINING MINISTRY: Through Vacation Bible Scliool Clinic, Music 
Clinic, Training Union Clinic, Baptist Men's Clinic and Evangelism Clinic 
we are tryii\g to belp train the leaders of our churches. 

- 14 - 



COUNSELING MINISTRY: The pastors of our Association are over- 
worked. During the year some pastors have referred members to the 
'missionary for counseling. Pastors seek the help and listening ear of your 
ixnissionary. 

I CONSULTATION MINISTRY: The missionary is constantly being con- 

I suited by pulpit conamittees both in this Association as well as from other 
Associations. He is consulted by building committees interested in building 
new buildings, renovating and improving buildings and grounds; he is con- 
, stantly being consulted by State and Southern Baptist Convention personnel 
I about various churches in the Association, curriculum, personnel, etc. 
I PUBLICITY MINISTRY: The Sandhills B ap tist Bulletin is published 

monthly which tells of news of the churches, pr'ojects of the Convention as 
well as the Association, items that should be of interest to individuals of 
the churches and news of the Association. The "Bulletin" is being sent to 
men in the Military whose names have been given. 

PASTORAL MINISTRY: For those churches without pastors, the mis- 
sionary has preached, visited, counseled, and conducted funerals. 

PENAL MINISTRY: For the past three years the Association has been 
ministering to the boys at Morrison Training School at Hoffman, North 
Carolina. Your Missionary conducts Vespers the first Sunday of each month, 
counsels with all boys who indicate a spiritual problem or who makes a 
profession of faith in Jesus Christ, and teaches two Bible Study classes each 
month. During the past year a Vacation Bible School was conducted for 74 
boys. 

For the past few months your missionary has been visiting the Prison 
Unit at the McCain Sanatorium and conducting Worship Services each Sunday 
morning. At the present time two patients at McCain are studying Bible 
Courses. 

There is still another ministry that the Association offers. . , . 
The MINISTRY OF LOVE: That which we do in the Association we do 
because we LOVE Jesus Christ, our brethren, and those who are lost. If in 
all the other ministries we perform, there is no love then "It profiteth us 
nothing. " 

Respectfully submitted, Michael T. Ray, Missionary 

BAPTIST MEN'S REPORT

Ambassador Leader; Arthur Green, Missions Study Leader; and Glenn

Department as specialists in training the Brotherhood officers in other 
Associations. Bill Deaton served as a Royal Ambassador Training Leader 
and Joe S. Lennon worked with Mission Study and Mission Action Leaders. 

3. On October 24, 1966, the Annual Associational Church Brotherhood 
Workshop was held in Carthage. Outside Specialists were provided by the 
State Brotherhood Department for the training of our Church Brotherhood

Associational Five-year Spiritual Growth Program Clinic at the First

6. On May 20, 1967, the Brotherhood held a Retreat for Baptist Men 
and their wives at the American Legion Hut, Carthage, from 3:30 p.m. 'til 
7:00 p.m. The men and women from the Fairview Baptist Church were host 
and provided a good mean for all who attended. This period of spiritual 
renewal was highlighted by the testimony in word and song of Mr. Cosmo 
Pleche, a former night club entertainer from Concord, North Carolina. 

7. On June 24, 1967, an Associational Retreat for Baptist Men and 
Boys was held at the Pinebluff Lake from 3:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. William 
Deaton directed this retreat and a "dutch treat" picnic was enjoyed by all.

Respectfully submitted, Joe S. Lennon, Director 
SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

1. During the first of the year, an Associational Sunday School Work- 
shop was held in the Carthage Baptist Church with emphasis upon the Five- 
Year Spiritual Growth Program. 

a. Goal Setting 

b. Selecting and assigning plans and action 

c. Planning organizational activities 

2. Also presented to the churches were instructions concerning the 
New Life and Work Curriculum Lessons obtainable for teaching. 

3. Nineteen of the 27 churches have reported Vacation Bible Schools. 
The Association provided a Vacation Bible School again this year at 
Morrison Training School with 74 boys participating. 

4. As in the past, questionnaires were sent to all churches requesting 
each to let our Sunday School Officers help them in their needs, but no 
response. 

5. I sincerely hope that all churches will begin to take advantage of all 
assistances the Association offers in the way of training of Sunday School 
teachers and officers; filmstrips on Sunday School work and program; 
materials, books, pamplets, clinics and workshops offered by the State 
Convention. 

Respectfully submitted, Ray Trudell, Superintendent 

MUSIC DIRECTOR'S REPORT 



Reflecting a growing awareness of the importance to the ministry of the 
church the Sandhills Baptist Association music ministry showed outstanding 
growth. Under the able leadership of Rev. Haskell Duncan of Southern Pines 
a well supported school of music was held February 6-10, 1967, at the First 
Baptist Church, Carthage. Thirteen churches of the Association were 
represented with a total enrollment of ninety-one. Classes and instructors 
were: Playing, Mr. Charles Gatwood, Associate Music Director, North 
Carolina Baptist State Convention; Reading, Mr. Haskell Duncan, Southern 
Pines; Directing, Mrs. Max Gilmore, Beulah Hills Baptist Church, Pine- 
hurst; Music in Worship, Mr. Charles Story, Kannapolis, North Carolina. 

All churches of the Association reported at least one choir for 1966 with 
a total enrollment of 617, and seven churches reported multiple choirs. A 
breakdown of the age groups is as follows: Beginners 21; Primaries 57; 
Juniors 80; Internaediates 54; Young People 3 6; Adults 212 in addition to 
several special groups. 

Two events of importance are scheduled for the coming year: First, an 
Associational Choir for the Evangelistic Rally to be held at the Union Pines 
High School Auditorium, March 3, 1968. Second, an Associational Hymn 
Festival, the date of which will be announced later. All choir leaders are 
urged to plan to prepare for both these events.

^ STEWARDSHIP PROMOTION REPORT 

Despite the fact that Southern Baptists have been sharing the Gospel 
through the Cooperative Program since 1925 many do not know what this plan 

is. The Question "WHAT IS THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM?" is often 

heard. 

The answer is simple. What the budget is to the local church, the 
COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is to the denomination. It is the support of all 
missionary causes at home and abroad. . . it's preaching the gospel. . . . it's 
the healing in the name of Jesus through hospitals and clinics everywhere. . . 
it is the teaching and training of Christian leaders for all the great tasks of 
the Kingdom endeavor. 

As our people worship with tithes and offerings Sunday after Sunday and 
as the local church channels a part of its income through the COOPERATIVE 
PROGRAM we enter partnership with God and one another in obedience to the 
command, "Go, Preach. . . Teach. " 

Let us resolve to pray earnestly for all Kingdom work and support our 
prayers with sacrificial giving of self and substance. 

Last year North Carolina Baptists gave $5, 787, 311 through the 
COOPERATIVE PROGRAM. Supplementing this with Special Offerings 
axnounting to $2, 897, 639, we had a total of $8, 684, 950 for all mission 
causes. Two associations had 100% of their churches giving through the 
COOPERATIVE PROGRAM. 

According to our records, our Association gave $24, 345 during the last 
year for World Missions through the Cooperative Program. We also gave 
$16, 237 as designated gifts to Foreign, State, Home and Associational 
Missions. 

We recommend: 

1) That each church plan, vigorously promote, and subscribe a worthy 
budget. 

2) That special emphasis be given to prayer for COOPERATIVE 
PROGRAM causes during October. 

3) That each church give regularly through the Cooperative Program. 

4) That in response to the special call of the General Board of the 
Baptist State Convention we increase our Cooperative Program giving at 
least 10% during the coming year. 

5) That each church feel free to call upon the Stewardship Representative 
during the coming year to come and present any part of the Stewardship 
program. 

Respectfully submitted, Charles Moseley, Representative 

EVANGELISM REPORT 



This past year the churches of the Association baptized 159 persons. 
We are grateful to God for every person who has been brought to confess 
Jesus Christ as Lord. We call upon our churches to give themselves to the 
work that brought Christ from heaven to earth. Evangelism. Evangelism is 
the heart of the churches' existence. Evangelism must be two pronged 
thrust: we must publically proclaim the Gospel, that it is the power of God 
unto salvation, and we must personally win others to Christ. "Every 
Christian, a Witness" is more than a slogan, it must be a reality in our 
lives. 

Our churches face a tremendous evangelistic challenge in the Crusade 
of the Americas. This is more than just a two-week period of revivals. It 
is an emphasis on evangelism that should occupy our churches throughout 
1968-69 and '70'. Our churches have been challenged by one mission field, 
Brazil, to give ourselves to the work of evangelism and world missions for 
1968-69. Some of the challenges in the CRUSADE OF AMERICAS are:.

There has never been a time when church leaders and members need so 
much to become dedicated and comimitted to the task of training themselves 
and others in the ministries of the church. Will you help through your 
prayers, tune and energies to help the Training Union fulfill its mission? 

Respectfully submitted, Wayne Adams, Director 

BIBLICAL RECORDER REPORT 



Does your church have a definite plan for getting information on the 
Baptist world wide mission effort to your church members ? 

Is there any definite plan to acquaint the membership with Baptist 
Doctrine and polity ? 

Do your members have any way of knowing what other churches are doing 
and what is being done through the cooperative efforts ? 

Is there any systematic plan for placing good Christian literature in the 
homes ? 

Do your deacons and church officers have a regular source of information 
as they help shape the policies of your church? 

Is there a planned way to get accurate information and helpful suggestions 
to your church leaders ? 

The simplest and most economical way to get all this information into the 
homes of your members is through the BIBLICAL RECORDER. Under the 
Church Budget Plan, this can be done for only 4^ a week. 

Nothing else can take the place of the BIBLICAL RECORDER in Baptist 
life. If you doubt this. . . try it in your church. 

Respectfully submitted, Mrs. W.E.Stanley, Representative 

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOMES FOR THE AGING REPORT 

Your North Carolina Baptist Homes for the Aging have been on the move 
during the past year. In fact, we moved into our new Home at Yanceyville 
in September and have received 3 more dear old people into our family. 
This puts our total at 200 deserving older men and women in our care in all 
our Homes. 

In the five Homes (Resthaven, Hayes, Albemarle, Hamilton and 
Yanceyville) you haye an eternal investment and can rejoice in the loving 
care which you are making possible for our older people. The majority are 
financially needy persons, and are supplemented through the love gifts of 
North Carolina Baptists. . . through the Special Day Offering, received the 
third Sunday in February each year, and our share of the Cooperative Pro- 
gram. The Special Day Offering, 1967, is an all-time high, but with the 
high cost of living and the maintenance of the new Home and the care of 30 
additional residents at Yanceyville, a crisis could be had during the coming 
year, if the gifts from our Baptists do not increase in proporation to our 
needs. 

We with to thank all Baptists who have enabled us to minister to the aging 
in Christ's name, and we want all of you to know that each of your five 
Homes exists for the people from all over our great state. We could not 
operate without your love, prayers, concern and your financial support. 

Respectfully submitted, William Poole, Superintendent

rN MEMORIAM 

The fact that these dear people were raembers of churches that proclaim 
the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ says soraething to each of us, 
and we pause to thank God for their witness and work. 

As we think of them on this occasion we are reminded of the Master's 
Words, "Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for 
you from the foundation of the world. " Life on this earth with its sins and 
sorrows comes to an end for Godly people with a joyous welcome to a kingly 
heritage. 

We are further reminded of the words. . . "Blessed are the dead which 
die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest 
from their labors, and their works do follow them. " Death is but a gateway 
to a more abundant life for the Christian that begins here on earth and is 
projected into eternity. 

May we pause as we pay silent tribute to our Beloved Dead:

Your Associational worker has had the opportunity and privilege of preach- 
ing several ordination messages for new Deacons during the past year. The 
need for Spirit filled Deacons today is our great need; men who know their 
duties and led of God in these duties. Every church should provide their 
deacons with either Naylor book, "The Baptist Deacon" of Foshees book en- 
titled, "The Ministry of the Deacon". 

During the past summer 24 of the 27 churches had Vacation Bible Schools. 
We trust that for 1969 every church will have a VBS and if help should be 
needed the Associational Sunday School Leaders will be glad to help. 

Morrison Training School had another Vacation Bible School this year 
with 74 boys attending. For the first time in four years the Sandhills Bap- 
tist Association furnished only two workers. Mr. Art Green, the Associa- 
tional Sunday School Superintendent and Mr. Ray. At the conclusion 22 boys 
made decisions for Christ and follow up classes were conducted for these 
boys for eight weeks after the Bible School. 

In the spring the missionary taught a course for 45 counselors at Morri- 
son Training School "The Principles of Teaching and Learning". These 
counselors are responsible for teaching Sunday School classes each Sunday 
and this course was to prepare these men and women that they might do a 
better job. 

This year has been a year when Revival has been breaking out even be- 
fore the meetings began. The Spirit of the Crusade of the Americas has al- 
ready been felt in many of the churches. Brother pastors have been helping 
brother pastors as never before. This ha^ been a year of decision for many 
men, women, boys and girls and we continue to praise God. 

This year we have had three fine Executive Committee Meetings. The 
attendance has been exceptionally good, the programs interesting and pro- 
voking, often prepared by different departmental leaders. We trust that in 
the coming year more members of the Executive will become more involved 
in the work and service of the Association. 

A word of thanks to all departmental heads and Chairman of Committees 
for the work they have done during the past year. (Please refer to their re- 
ports found in this book of Reports). To those of you who have served so 
faithfully in other capacities of the Association; to those of you who have been 
upholding us in your prayers; and for those of you who seek to serve Him 
more fully in the coming year we say thanks, and may God bless you. 

Two of our men. . .Mr. Joe Lennon and Rev. Fulton Thomas, have visited 
foreign fields this past summer, Mr. Lennon attended the Crusade of the 
Americas Conference in Brazil and Rev. Thomas went to Columbia on a preach- 
ing tour. We look forward to these two men telling and sharing their ex- 
periences. 

Continue to pray for the work of the Association and for your Missionary. 
Respectfully submitted, Michael T.Ray, Missionary

Idult or mixed choirs made up the festival. Special guests were the Glee 
::iub from Samaracand Manor of the State Industrial School for Girls. About 
iOO persons attended this inspiring presentation of religious music. 

On February 18 an Associational choir was formed and prepared music 
:or the Associational Evangelistic Rally that was held March 3 in the Union 
Pines High School Auditorium. There were about 60 voices in the mixed choir 
ind more than a dozen churches of the Association represented. 

The second music workshop was held at the Camieron Baptist Church, 
September 22 with eight churches represented. The larger theme for discus- 
sion was the selection and introduction of music to both choir and congregation. 

This year, three programs will be featured: the Annual Associational 
Hymn Festival, and Associational Hymn Rehearsal, and the formation of an 
Associational Youth Choir. The last named has the goal of offering them- 
selves for concert as well as to cooperate upon invitation with any church 
possible during the Crusade of the Americas. 

Respectfully submitted, Joe Babb, Director of Music 

STEWARDSHIP - PROMOTION REPORT 

What the budget is to the local church, the Cooperative Program is to the 
denomination. It is support for all missionary causes at home and abroad-- 
Lt's preaching the Gospel--it's healing in the name of Jesus Christ through 
Hospitals and clinics everywhere--it is teaching and training Christian leaders 
for all the great tasks of Kingdom endeavor. 

As our people worship with tithes and offerings Sunday by Sunday and as 
your church channels a worthy part of its income through the Cooperative 
Program, we enter into partnership with God and one another in obedience 
to the command, "Go. . . Preach. . . Teach. . ! " 

Let us resolve to pray earnestly for all Kingdom work through the Co- 
operative Program and support our prayers with sacrificial giving of self and 
substance. In 1967 there were 20 churches in our Association that gave un- 
designated gifts to the Cooperative Program. It is my prayer that in 1968 every 
church will give a gift to the Cooperative Program, regardless of how small 
it may be. 

According to records available our Association gave $22,552.00 during 
the last year for World Missions through the Cooperative Program. 

We recommend: 
- 1. That each church plan, vigorously promiote and subscribe a worthy 
budget. 

2. That each church have s special prayer for Cooperative Program 
causes during each church service in October. 

3. That each church give regularly, a worthy percentage of each offering 
plate dollar through the Cooperative Program. Malachi 3:10. 

May God grant us the faith and courage to trust Him and to show it by 
giving Him His rightful place in material possessions. 

Respectfully submitted, Charles Moseley, Chairman 

BAPTIST MEN'S REPORT 

The Baptist Men's Day Program was encouraged in all our Baptist Churches 
on January 28, 1968. Program packets were sent to all churches. 

On March 29-30 the Baptist Men's Convention was held at Charlotte and 
a few men from the Association attended this meeting. 

On May 25th the Baptist Men of the Association met at Red Branch Baptist 
Church. Rev. Tom Green was invited to be the speaker but due to car trouble 
he could not get there in time. The meeting turned into a period of preaching, 
sharing, praying and praising the Lord. A delicious meal was served by the 
ladies of the church at the Greenwood Grange Hall. 

Respectfully submitted. Fleet Allen, Director

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

January Bible Study was taught in several of our churches. (We trust 
all pastors and lay leaders interested in teaching the January Bible Study book, 
"The Gospel In Isaiah", will attend a meeting November 25 beginning at 10:30 
A.M. at the Carthage Baptist Church. Dr. Howard Ford will teach how to 
teach the book of Isaiah. There will be 11/2 hours of study before lunch, 
lunch and after lunch another 11/2 hour. ) 

Four Associational Sunday School leaders attended the State-wide Vaca- 
tion Bible School Clinic in Wingate, January 8-10, 1968. On April 8, 1968, 
the Associational Vacation Bible School Clinic was held in Carthage with 15 
churches sending representatives. 

On April 22, 1968, there was a Sunday School Teachers Workshop at 
Ashley Heights and Mr. Ray taught the "Principles of Teaching and Learning.' 
On August 5th the regular Associational Sunday School Officers Meeting was 
held at PineyWood Baptist Church. Reports were given and tentative plans 
for 1968-69 were presented. 

August 23rd the Superintendent attended the State Briefing Meeting at 
High Point; on September 23rd. Associational Sunday School Action Night 
was observed. The Sunday School and the Crusade of the Americas filmstrip 
was shown and 1968-69 Sunday School materials were given to all churches.

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

Although all reports are not in, there is much indication that Woman's 
Missionary Union in the Sandhills have had a busy, active year. We have 21 
organized W. M. U. Societies with 14 churches reporting other organizations 
such as Y. W.A's, G.A.'s and Sunbeams. 

We have seen the new change over in W. M. U. work. We had a special 
meeting in Carthage with Miss Kathryn Bullard of the State office explaining 
the new set up. 

Our Annual Missionary Meeting was conducted in the Baptist Church at 
Carthage. This meeting, as well as the Council and other meetings have all 
been well attended. Several women attended the Leadership Council held at 
Raleigh, and your Director attended the W. M. U. Week at Ridgecrest in the 
summer. 

Our crying need in W. M. U. of the Sandhills is for more dedicated women 
to serve as leaders in Sunbeam Bands, G.A.'s and Y. W. Auxiliaries. This 
is a matter of grave concern and I would ask our Council and all ladies to make 
this a matter of special prayer. 

Schedule meetings for 1969: Annual W.M. U. Meeting - March 14; 
Bethlehem Baptist Church, 6:00 P.M. 

Respectfully submitted, Mrs. G. P. Jones, Director 

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

This is a full year at the Baptist Hospital with more than thirty thousand 
sick people being given medical service and Christian ministry, and more 
than 165, 000 visits being made to the clinics of the hospital. In addition to 
this, more than 700 persons are receiving training in the various fields of 
medical care and Christian service, and a vast amount of medical research is 
being done in the cause and treatments of the diseases which afflict us and our 
loved ones. 

The Development Program, which greatly increases the capacity of the 
Medical Center to train and to serve, is progressing on schedule. 

The cost of this large Development Program is being provided by interested 
individuals, corporations, foundations and government agencies, which rec- 
ognize the valuable service our Medical Center is rendering and the urgent 
need for greatly enlarging these services. ii 

- 12 - ■ 



This has been a very difficult year financially, and our hospital has been 
forced to make important changes in its financial policies. The amount of 
the free services now will have to be governed by the amount of the Mother's 
Day Fund. A patient's hospital bill will be estimated in advance, any available 
hospital insurance will be deducted, and the balance must be paid before the 
patient is admitted unless he is certified by his county welfare department 
or some other agency. Any balance beyond the estimated bill must be paid 
before the patient is discharged. In case of an emergency, the patient miay 
be admitted but the hospital bill must be paid as soon as possible after admis- 
sion. The Mother's Day Fund will be used as it has been to pay the difference 
between the amount paid by the certifying agency and the total cost of caring 
for the patient. 

The great concern at our Baptist Hospital is for these patients who must 
have financial assistence if they are to get the specialized care they need, 
but the hospital has come to the point that it cannot continue to operate with- 
out the money necessary to cover the cost. In view of the circumstances, 
we believe the great majority of our pastors and our people will understand 
these changes and will give their full cooperation. The Mother's Day Offer- 
ing will need to be increased greatly if our hospital is to fulfill its mission to 
our people who most need it. We want to assure our hospital that it can de- 
pend upon us in full measure. 

FOUNDATION REPORT 

During the past year, the North Carolina Baptist Foundation, Inc. has 
made regular and systematic progress. More and more of our Baptist people 
are inquiring about the services of the Foundation and are following these 
inquiries with concrete evidence of their concern. Some have made direct 
monetary contributions through the Foundation for a particular agency or 
institution. Others, with the help of their lawyers, have made provisions in 
their wills that through the Foundation Christian causes have been remembered. 

One of our major emphases has been in the area of will making. Our 
pastors, associational superintendents or missionaries, and our church rep- 
resentatives have given encouraging help in this educational campaign. The 
response in each instance, whether in an association or individual church, 
has been most gratifying. 

We solicit your prayers and your continuing cooperation. The Foundation 
remains ready to assist you in any phase of your endeavors. Please call on 
us if we can be of assistance to you. 

Respectfully submitted, C. Gordon Maddrey, Secretary 

DEPARTMENT OF PROGRAM SERVICES REPORT 

The Department of Program Services promotes the total Baptist program 
and is primarily a public relations agency incorporated in the Divisions of 
Stewardship Promotions. 

During the past year, the department booked more than 12,000 free rental 
films and has a film library of over 2, 500 titles covering every area of de- 
nominational endeavor. 

The department has prepared and catalogued sonne 800 color slides for 
use in illustrating various ministries of state Baptist work. 

The department produces the T. V. network series, "A Light Unto My 
Path", a mission work designed to reach the deaf, the aging and unchurched. 
Beside the various state-wide networks, it is carried in nine other states 
outside North Carolina. The department also produces a weekly T. V. pro-

1968 In January a record number of General Baptist attended the statewide 
Vacation Bible School Clinic at Wingate College. A series of five conferences 
on human relations were held in April with a total attendance of 800 

Thirteen small scholarships were provided this year for ministerial

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOME REPORT 

North Carolina Baptist and other friends of the Children's Homes are 
making possible a Christian way of life for hundreds of boys and girls who 
otherwise would be denied many of life's best opportunities. More than 1300 
children were assisted in some type of service during the past year 

All associated with the Children's Homes are deeply grateful for every 
type of support. Cooperative Program income through the churches is in- 
creasingly important Last year's Thanksgiving offering is the largest ever- 
now approaching $325, 000. 00. Special gifts, bequest through willslnd 
tnllT-ffTT^ provide much needed income and wonderful opportunities to 
invest m the lives of children and young people.

THE BIBLICAL RECORDER REPORT 

In January, the RECORDER had its 135th birthday, While circulation 
did not set any new records in the past year, a healthy gain was noted. In- 
nation, accompanied by increased printing cost, caused the RECORDER to 

- 14 - 



'have to buckle its belt, but necessary steps were well-accepted by our Bap- 
tist people. One of these was to let the churches pay the state tax, thus sav- 
ing the RECORDER nearly $5, 000. 00 a year. 

There is every indication that the RECORDER is continuing to be read 
closely. Letters to the editor reflect this growing interest on the part of the 
readers. This is healthy and is one of the strong points of Baptist democracy. 

The tragedy is that more of our Baptist people do not get the RECORDER. 
Although hundreds of churches send it to every home, there are too many 
churches that do not have it in the budget. Frequently the interest and hard 
work of one person can mean the difference. Try it and see. 

The RECORDER staff rededicates itself to the job of getting out the best 
paper possible in these days of serious upheaval. Speaking the truth in love 
is the goal of the RECORDER at all times. The support of all Baptist is 
needed in carrying out this objective. 

Respectfully submitted, J. Marse Grant, Editor 

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOMES 

The past year in the Baptist Homes for the Aging has been one of the 
most eventful in the history of the Homes. Of primary significance was the 
opening of the Yanceyville Home on November 1, 1967, and the dedicatory 
service on April 25, 1968, with Governor Dan K.Moore as the principal 
speaker. 

When the Yanceyville Home, accomodating 31 residents, is filled to 
capacity, the number living in all of our Homes will reach 200. Residents at 
Yanceyville, Resthaven, the Albemarle Home, the Hayes Home, the Hilton 
Home, and the Infirmary constitute a large and ever-growing family of elderly 
people who receive compassionate and tender care. 

Baptist of North Carolina can be grateful for their record in ministering 
to the residents in their five Homes for the Aging. About 85% of the resident 
ministered unto receive assistance through the love gifts of North Carolina. 
These love gifts from our Baptist churches come from two main sources: 
(1) The Special Day offering, received on the third Sunday of February each 
year, from which the Homes derive 22 1/2% of their total support; (2) The 
Cooperative Program from which 12 1/2% of total income. Gifts for 1967 
through these two sources were at an all time high and amounted to around 
$200,000.00. The Special Day Offering, at this time, is reflecting an en- 
couraging increase. Unless these two vital sources of income are increased 
considerably, your Baptist Homes cannot be maintained, either on the basis 
of quality of care or quantity. 

Everyone contributing to this great area of human need should be grateful 
to the Lord that he is a part of a great denomination that has had a vision to 
plan for the aging and is moving along forward in meeting the needs of this 
deserving group. 

Respectfully submitted, William A, Poole, Supt. 
Baptist Homes for the Aging 

ANNUITY BOARD REPORT 

The three-plan Southern Baptist Protection Program has one provision 
in Plan A that will affect all prospective new members soon; this provision 
is called "Delayed Participation", commonly known as "grace period". 
This will become effective on January 1, 1969. The provision of the grace 
date is established in one of three ways: (1) as of January 1, 1969; (2) on the 
members 26th birthday; or (3) one year from the date he first becomes eligible, 
whichever is the latter. It is imperative that all who are now eligible join 
the Program before January 1, 1969. 

Inflation continues to affect the buying power of the dollar for everyone, 
including those who have retired. The Protection Program is designed to 

- 15 - 



help any church provide as much retirement income for the minister and staff 
as it desires. Many churches are moving to ten percent dues on total salary, 
recommended as a minimum by the Annuity Board and state convention 
secretaries. 

As of December 31, 1967, 1,202 new members bad been issued certifi- «« 
cates in Plan "A" of the Protection Plan or Program. The total number of flpl 
employes covered in the agency program was 7, 140. Anyone interested in .^ 

knowing more about the Protection Program please write Rev. Guy Cain, 301 
Hillsboro Street, Raleigh, N. C. 

Rev, Gene Booker, host pastor, announced the arrangements for the 
evening meal and pronounced the prayer. 

A most delicious meal was served by the women of the Robbins First 
Baptist Church.

Constitution and By-Laws 



We, the Missionary Baptist Churches of Moore County and adjacent 
territory, convinced of the necessity of an association of churches in order 
to promote fellowship, missions, education. Christian service, the preaching

do hereby agree and subscribe to the following articles:

Section 1. The Association shall be composed of cooperating Missionary 
Baptist Churches within the area served by the Association. 

Section 2. The Association shall be the sole judge of its membership. 
The application of any church for membership shall be referred to the Com- 
mittee on Reception of Churches, which shall examine its organization as to 
covenant, articles of faith and practice. Upon a vote of the Association, the 
church shall be admitted as a member and received into full fellowship of 
this Association immediately. 

The application of an established Missionary Baptist Church, cooperative 
member of an adjacent Association of like faith and practice, said church 
being in good standing in its own Association, shall upon recommendation of 
that Association, upon favorable recommendation of our Committee on 
Reception of Churches, and upon favorable vote of this Association, be 
admitted as a member and received into full fellowship of this Association 
immediately. 

Churches making application for membership into this Association 
between annual meetings may be voted on and admitted to full membership 
by a majority vote of the Executive Committee after investigation, approval 
and recommendation of the Committee on Reception of Churches. 

Section 3. The Association may at any time withdraw fellowship from 
any church that ceases to abide by the spirit of this constitution. 

Section 4. Any church may withdraw from this Association at its 
pleasure.

after the second Sunday in October. 

Section 2. The annual meeting of the Association shall be composed of 
(1) all officers of the Association; (2) all pastors of member churches;

ex-officio messengers at large of the Association and exercise all rights 
and privileges of duly elected messengers. (4) Three messengers from each 
cooperating church with a membership up to one hundred and one additional 
messenger for each fifty members or major fraction thereof. No church,

which is a cooperating member of the Association. Messengers must be 
duly elected by their churches. A cooperating church shall be one that

REPORTS 



MISSIONARY'S REPORT 

1968-69 has been a very busy and challenging year. Beside the regular 
routine duties there have been the Chaplaincy at Moore County Hospital, the 
Radio ministry over Station W. E. E. B., the ministry at the Cameron 
Morrison School at Hoffman, N. C, and the Prison ministry at McCain. 
Several churches have been without pastors and the missionary has been 
helping in the various ministries of these churches. Help has been given to 
pulpit committees and churches working on Constitutions. 

In December your missionary was invited to attend the Southern Baptist 
Convention Planning and Program Conference in Nashville, Tennessee for a 
week. This meeting gave opportunity for him to work with other denomina- 
tional leaders of the Convention in planning for the 70' s. 

The highlight of the Calendar year has been the Crusade of the Americas. 
Revivals were conducted in all churches during the mionths of March and May 
and there are indications of spiritual revival and awakening in our churches. 

Our Youth have been active in nnany areas. "M" Night was conducted by 
the Church Training Departnnent with the youth having planned the prograna. 
John Hickman, of Paraguay, a student at Wingate College, gave his 
testimiony and presented a musical progrann. The Good News Singers of 
Fayetteville, N. C, presented the folk musical with several young people 
making decisions for Christ. The Youth Choir, under the leadership of 
Rev. Joe Babb, sang at several churches during the Crusade of the Amiericas 
Revivals. 

This year very little has been done in the area of Sunday School on the 
Associational level due to the resignation of Mr. Art Green who moved to 
Virginia in Novemiber, 1968. 

One of the best nneetings we had was the Men and Boy's Retreat at 
Cliff Blue's Lake with 65 men and boys present. Chuck Cranford, a former 
innnate of Central Prison, gave his testimony and challenged the men and 
boys to live and witness for Christ. 

This year we have lost only two pastors: Rev. A. T. Robertson, of 
Ashley Heights, resigned because of health; and Charles Moseley was called 
to the Great Bridge Baptist Church in Chesapeake, Virginia. Two new 
pastors have comie: Rev. Donald Swinney to the Red Branch Baptist Church, 
and Rev. Robert Denton to the Ashley Heights Baptist Church. We welcome 
these men and their families into our Association. We look forward to the 
Rev. Ray Benfield and his family coming to the Carthage Baptist Church 
the first of November. 

Your missionary has been working with both staff and boys of the 
Cameron Morrison School this past year. An eighteen hour Seminary 
Extension Course, "Survey of the Life of Christ", was taught to 21 staff 
members in October - Decennber; and from March - May, another eighteen 
hour course, "A Historical Survey of Christianity", was taught to 14 staff 
members . 

In June a Vacation Bible School for 60 boys was conducted. At the end 
of the School, 15 decisions for Christ were made. At the present time 
there are 45 boys enrolled in Bible Study. Each boy has received a copy 
°^ G OOD NEWS FO R MO DERN MAN given by the ladies of the Cameron 
Baptist Church. 

The Executive Committee has miet three times this year. We 
appreciate the interest these men and women have shown in the work of the 
Association. We trust all members, both pastors and lay people, will 
support the Association with their prayers, talents and financial support. 



15 



We appreciate the faithfulness of our Music Director, Rev. Joe Babb; 
the Church Training Director, Wayne Adams, and his co-workers; Glenn 
Crissman and the men who worked so faithfully with the Baptist Men and 
the R. A.'s; and Mrs. G. P. Jones and the ladies who assisted her in 
the Woman's Missionary Work. Our appreciation to Rev. Fulton Thonnas, 
Chairman of the Evangelism Committee and his work with the presentation 
of the Foreign Mission Study on Columbia, South America. 

We offer THANKS to all who upheld us with your prayers and encourage' 
ments and know that without them and the Holy Spirit's guidance this work 
would be imipossible. Continue to ask for God's Guidance and Leadership 
in the workings of this Association. 

Respectfully submitted, Michael T, Ray 
Associational Missionary 

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

The Woman's Missionary Union had to face the change and turnover in 
their work the past year. They met the challenge with prayer and hard 
work. 

We had twenty organized W. M. S. Societies with no new societies 
reporting youth organizations. We have one church with no Baptist Men's 
organization and the W. M. U. of that church organized an R. A. chapter. 
They have a young man leading but the main support is from the W. M. U. 

Mrs. Lloyd Thomas, Associational Young Woman's Auxiliary Director, 
led a rally for the Y, W. A.'s. ?h August she directed the Presentation of 
Bibles to two young ladies getting married. Both meetings were at 
Cameron Baptist Church. 

Mrs. Joe Babb, Associational Sunbeam Director, led a Sunbeami Day 
Rally in August. It was well attended. 

We have not been able to secure an Associational G. A. or Sunbeam 
Director for 1969-70. We are concerned about this and hope to secure 
both soon. 

In Novemiber our Foreign Mission Study was on Colombia Land of 
Conflict and Promises. Rev. Fulton Thomas, pastor of Lennon Springs 
and Ephesus, visited the Mission Field in Colombia in September 1968. 
We held two Association-wide Meetings on this work and Rev. Thomas 
showed slides and told of our work there. Mrs. Thomas led the discussion 
on the book. One meeting was held in Carthage Baptist Church and one was 
held in Aberdeen Baptist Church. 

A Training Clinic was held for all Associational Directors and Officers 
at the Cameron Baptist Church in September. 

The Annual Missionary Meeting was held at Bethlehem Baptist Church 
in April. Mrs. A. L. Stencil, of Rocky Mount, State G. A. Director, 
and Rev. and Mrs. Zeb Moss, home on furlough from Zambia, were the 
speakers . 

All meetings and councils have been well attended. 

Our W. M. U. Societies stressed more than ever the Week of Prayer 
for both Foreign and Home Missions, 

Our greatest need yet is for miore dedicated women to work in our 
Youth Organizations. 

Schedule Meetings. . .Annual Woman's Missionary Union Meeting to 
be held in April, 1970, at the Ives Memorial Baptist Church, Pinebluff, 
N, C. 

Council Meetings are to be held each quarter. 

Respectfully submitted, Mrs. G. P. Jones, Dir.

MUSIC 

The response to the program of the Music Department continues to 
become stronger each year. This reflects the increasing value music holds 
in worship and proclamation of the Gospel across the Association. It is 
hoped that this trend will continue to the edification of the church and to the 
praise of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

The Second Annual Associational Hymn Festival was held with the 
First Baptist Church, Aberdeen. After postponemient due to inclement 
February weather, and in the face of still more unfavorable conditions, 
the mieeting was held. It was in the fairest terms a success, not only in 
attendance and participation but in the quality of music presented, and in 
regard to the improvement of technique. There were seven choirs present, 
representing six churches, two of which participated for the first time. 

Another activity was the formation of an Associational Youth Choir. 
In all, about thirty young people were enrolled. The aimi of the choir was 
to support the Crusade of the Americas Revivals in our Association. 
During the Crusade, the choir visited four churches presenting 
inspirational music and testimonies. 

May I personally commend you for your kind support during my tenure 
as your director. Further, let me exhort you to give the same zealous 
and faithful support to our new director in the coming year. 

Respectfully submitted, Joe R. Babb, Director 

CHURCH TRAINING 



1. "M" Night was held November 25, 1968, at the Union Pines High 
School Auditorium, with John Hickman of Paraguay presenting a musical 
program. Officers discussed the Church Training program for the year 
and emphasized the new program concepts in Church Training. 

2« Encouraged all churches to participate in following Church Train- 
ing progranns : 

a. Youth Week, March 9 - I6, 1969 

b. Church Training Week in all Churches, April 21 - 25, 1969 

c. Church Training Youth Convention, May 2-3, 1969, Lumberton 

3. The Associational Youth Council continues to provide the main 
thrust of the Church Training Department. 

a. Five meetings of the Council were held to plan emphases in 
churches . 

b. They were instrumiental in the success of the miajor programs 
sponsored by the department. 

c. They continue to show a vital interest in the total church 
program . 

4. Associational Youth Night was held March 15th at the Union Pines 
High School Auditorium. The Good News Singers, of Fayetteville , provided 
an inspirational musical progrann in song and word. 

5. 1969-70 is a critical year in the life of Church Training. We are on 
the threshhold of our biggest advance in history. We have a new name. We 
have expanded responsibilities. We are constantly updating our materials 
and approaches to training. We are seeking new ways of being more 
effective witnesses for our Christ. Your prayers, support, and enthusiasm 
are essential as we work to enter the Seventies prepared fully for the tasks 
the Lord has given us. Support this vital phase of the church program 

Respectfully submitted, Wayne Adams, Director

BAPTIST HOSPITAL 



Our Medical Center continues a high quality program of medical care, 
training of nnedical personnel, and research in the causes and treatment of 
the diseases which afflict us. In the face of serious financial problems, 
the hospital staff is working more diligently than ever to minister to our 
people in keeping with their needs and to limit of the hospital's resources. 

The Hospital has instituted more efficient admiission procedures 
regarding patients' financial resources and plans for payment of hospital 
bills. Trained counselors are interviewing patients and their families 
regarding advance payments which are now required and for getting more 
adequate information on those who will need help. In this way they are 
able better to discover those patients who may be eligible for medical 
assistance through social services departmient or other health agencies, 
and can start proceedings at once for getting these patients certified if 
this has not been done. Those agencies pay a nnajor part of the cost for a 
patient they certify, but not the total cost, and the Mother's Day Fund must 
pay the balance. A member of the family must go to the agency and give 
the necessary information, and getting this done is often a real problem. 
Many pastors have helped in this connection and have rendered an important 
service for patient and the hospital. 

If it were not for the help which comes from these health agencies, our 
Mother's Day Fund would not last three months. After paying the difference 
between what the agencies pay and the total cost for these patients, the 
Mother's Day Offerings are used to help as many as possible of those who 
are eligible for certification and who cannot pay the total cost of their 
care. First preference must be given to those patients whose needs are 
the greatest and most urgent. The free care the hospital gives must now be 
limited in keeping with the funds provided for this purpose, because the 
hospital cannot continue to go deeper in debt. 



18 



It is important that our people understand that all the Mother's Day- 
Offering and designated gifts for this ministry are used for this purpose 
alone, and the hospital makes them go as far as it possibly can. The 
Trustees and Administration of the hospital are most grateful for the fine 
cooperation our pastors and our people are giving, and they earnestly 
solicit our understanding and generous support. 

STEWARDSHIP AND PROMOTION 



When the word "stewardship" is used, most of us begin to see the 
dollar sign $ $. If we think of stewardship only in terms of money, we 
miss the mark of our concept. Stewardship means "responsibility". . . in 
all areas of life. We are stewards or trustees of our time, talents, and 
abilities. The Christian attitude is that we are responsible beings and 
must one day give account to our Maker of all that He provides. 

The worship of God with our tithes and offerings through the churches 
provides a way of expressing our gratitude for His blessings. One of the 
ways we support World Mission, Christian Education, and Social Services 
is through the Cooperative Program. On May 5th of this past year we had 
a Stewardship Development Semiinar in our Association at which time 
various stewardship development plans and methods were explained. Those 
laymen and laywomen present were enlightened and inspired, and in the 
coming year plans are in the making to demonstrate various plans which 
every church may select and use as it seems best for that church. 

As dedicated Christian stewards will you try to lead your church: 

1. To use a stewardship program to help subscribe your own church 

budget? 

2. To increase the percentage of the offering plate dollar given 

through the Cooperative Program? 
If you should need help in the area of Stewardship and Promotion, 
please contact the Associational Missionary or Chairman of the Stewardship 
and Promotion Committee. 

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 



The Children's Homes, through a variety of quality services, is 
recognized as a family service agency ministering to more than 1200 
children and their families annually. This progrann is carried on on 
six campuses and through the work of regional casework centers through- 
out the state . 

More requests for services are now coming in to the Baptist Children's 
Homes than at any time in our previous history. All agency beds are 
filled and all available money is being utilized. 

Friends of the Homes in Western North Carolina, have responded 
generously to the Founders and Builders Program to raise funds with which 
to establish the Broyhill Home to serve the children of Western North 
Carolina. With the support and cooperation of Baptists and other friends 
of the Honnes, another ministry is being developed in Ashville. A Home 
in which to serve unwed mothers and their offspring will be opened during 
the fall of 1969. 

By the use of designated gifts and bequests from individuals and 
families, significant progress is being made in the long-range plans 
for upgrading of facilities. Two cottages are now under construction 
at Mills Honne. A recreation building and an infirmary at Kennedy Home 
and two cottages for children at the Broyhill Home are scheduled for 
construction during the next year. 

The contribution of our Baptist people through the Cooperative Program 
the Thanksgiving Offering, and special gifts are essential to our continued 



19 



operation and are received with deep appreciation. An increasing number 
of friends are finding a rewarding stewardship opportunity through the 
establishment of trusts for the Homes and by means of wills and estate 
planning for the needs of dependent children. Members of the staff are 
available for consultation in the estate planning and the preparation of wills, 

BAPTIST HOMES OF THE AGING 



Never before have your Baptist Homes of the Aging been more conscious 
of the Lord's Presence and of His Goodness than during the past year. 
He has rewarded our faith and moved upon our Baptist people to see the 
urgency of our needs and we are grateful. Ours shall continue to be a 
relationship of trust in the Lord and faith in our Baptist people. We 
ernestly hope that a continued and sustained effort will be made by our 
churches to increase and strengthen the amount of the two miain means of 
support to our ministry to the Aging. . . the Special Offering and the 
Cooperative Program. Through these two sources, one-third of the total 
income for the Homes is derived, and 85% of the residents, who are 
financially dependent, are cared for and supplemented. 

Since last year, the Yancyville Home, our newest Home, has been 
filled to capacity, and we now have almost 200 deserving older men and 
women living in our midst there and in our other four Homes. . . Resthaven 
and Hayes Home, in Winston-Salem; the Albermarle Home, in Albermarle; 
and the Hamiilton Homie, in Hamiilton. These wonderful people are finding 
much happiness in Christian compaionship with persons of their age group, 
and great security in knowing that they will be loved and cared for in 
sickness as well as in health. We believe that our Baptist people will want 
to have an ever-increasing part in so worthy a labor of love in the Master's 
Name. We know that the Lord will not fail us, and we also believe that our 
people will want to be as faithful as possible. 



FOUNDATION 






The assets of the North Carolina Baptist Foundation, Inc., have now 
reached beyond the one million dollar mark, including trust funds and real 
estate. This is an indication that Baptists of North Carolina have discovered 
that the Foundation is a real service arm of the Baptist Convention of North 
Carolina. 

The Foundation has put particular interest in the making of wills. Several 
churches have used the facilities of the Foundation to conduct WILL CLINICS 
and reports indicate they were successful. We have had the opportunity to 
counsel with many people concerning their own wills, and in some instances 
we have provided the informiation and direction necessary for inclusion of 
Baptist causes in their wills. 

We request your prayer support for this ministry. 

INTERRACIAL COOPERATION 

Baptists in the two state conventions have strengthened some established 
work during 1968-69 while opening new avenues of service together. 

Members of the General Baptist State Convention have shared in the 
annual state-wide Vacation Bible School Clinic at Wingate College in January; 
in the Conference on Evangelism; Men's and Boys' Conferences on Human 
Relationships were held in five places throughout the State. This departmient 
has utilized the Negro talent in the Baptist Youth Conference at Lumberton. 
Rev. and Mrs. C. R. Edwards, of Fayettville, served as the first Negro 
conference leaders at the North Carolina Baptist Assembly during World 
Mission Week in June at Southport. 

- 20 - 



Various churches and Associations have encouraged the program of 
work with the National Baptists at local levels. Successful biracial revivals 
were planned and held in the Robeson and Anson Associations. Several 
associations invited Negro speakers to participate in their annual meetings, 
and a growing number of white pastors and congregations are seeking ways 
of dialogue with Negro congregations. 

CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION 

The Division of Christian Higher Education of the Baptist State 
Convention functions chiefly through the Council made up of eighteen mem- 
bers of the Education Committee of the General Board, seven college 
presidents, seven chairmen of boards of trustees, and seven academic deans, 

North Carolina Baptists now have a university, four senior colleges 
and two junior colleges, with an enrollment of approximately 12,000 students 
There are more than 500 young men and women preparing for full-time 
Christian services. These Christian colleges operate on the basic assump- 
tion that apart from religious commitment life can have no ultimate meaning. 
Jesus Christ is the foundation of all truth and provides the frame of 
reference in which all knowledge can be examined and used for the good of 
man and for the glory of God and the two cannot be separated. 

All colleges have regular scheduled chapel services which provide an 
opportunity for worship, meditation, scripture, prayer, miusic, and 
preaching. Baptist colleges are not only concerned with the special role 
of training the Christian vocational worker, but they are also concerned 
with teaching and training churchmen who will take Christian views and 
sympathies into any vocation which they enter. 

The Cooperative Program is the life-line of Baptist colleges and the 
Administration, faculties, students, trustees and alumni are deeply 
grateful of North Carolina Baptists for this support.

PLEASE NOTE: To an c ersight on the part of the Associational Clerk and 
those helping in the preparation of the 1968-69 Minutes, the following itenn 
should have been included on page 12: 

* The $4, 600, 00 for the Missionary's salary, as proposed in the 1969-70 
Budget, is not a cut in salary from last year's budget. In the past, the State 
Baptist Convention of North Carolina has been paying Mr. Ray $900.00 a 
year for his nninistry as chaplain at the Cameron Morrison School at Hoffman, 
North Carolina, and this $900.00 has been included in his annual salary up to 
now. According to the departnnent of Missions, beginning January 1, 1970, 
this remuneration will no longer go through the Sandhills Baptist Association 
Treasurer, therefore we cannot include it in the Proposed Budget as before.

REPORTS 

MISSIONARY'S REPORT 1969-70 

Preparation and training will have to be the key words for 1969-70. We 
were fortunate to have a full slate of leaders at the Wingate State-wide 
Vacation Bible School Clinic. . .Gene Tuten, Association V.B.S. Director, 
Ray Benfield, Mrs. Ray Benfield, Mrs. G. P. Jones, Mrs. Robert Bowlin, 
and Mike Ray. In March we had our own Associational Vacation Bible 
School Clinic with a very good representation from the majority of the 
churches . 

The later part of January Mrs. G. P. Jones (W.M.U.), Gene Booker 
(Baptist Men), Robert Denton (Sunday School), Wayne Adams (Church 
Training), and your missionary attended the Shaping of the 70's Conference 
in Greensboro for training and on February 16 the Sandhills Baptist 
Associational Shaping of the 70' s Clinic was held in Carthage. Those 
churches sending representatives were helped greatly . . . those who had no 
representatives were contacted and offered help. Throughout the spring 
and summer Robert Denton, Ray Benfield, Gene Booker and Don Swinney 
visited in churches to explain the new grading system and new literature. 

An Associational Music Workshop was held in Carthage September 15, 
16, and 17 with good attendance from many churches. Mr. Charles 
Gatwood from the State Baptist Convention, Mr. Charles Storey of Winston- 
Salem, and Mrs. Edmond Geer of Aberdeen First Baptist Church were 
leaders for this workshop. The workshop was not only helpful to many people 
attending for the three nights but inspired several people to attend the Church 
Music Course at the Sandhills Community College. 

On September 21, Z2 and 24 an Associational Leadership Workshop was 
held with about 90 people taking advantage of training. Three books were 
used for each age group . . . Understanding, Guiding and Sunday School Work. . 
with the pre-schoolers, children, youth and adults. We trust these books 
can be offered at a later date for others who did not attend to take and a 
review for those who attended. 

The Associational Woman's Missionary Union has been extremely busy 
in training church leaders this past year. Not only have they had special 
training sessions for church W.M.U. Leaders but have visited several 
phurches for training. 

The Associational Baptist Men have held two Retreats. . .once at the 
Cameron Baptist Church with Mr. Henry Parker, Director of the Camieron 



Morrison School, the principal speaker and another Retreat with both boys 
and men participating. 

Each August one week is set aside for the Week of Prayer for Associa- 
tional Missions. This year nnany of the churches in our Association 
observed one Sunday for collection of Special Offering. We trust this will 
be an annual observance for all churches in the future and that all churches 
that feel led of God to do so will take a Special Offering. . . over and above 
their regular budgeted amount to the Association. A word of thanks to all 
churches for your contributions this year. Many of the churches have 
increased their contributions this year and as a result we have been able to 
pay our bills on timie and to start 1970-71 with a small balance. We trust 
other churches will be able to increase theirs this year. 

The Executive Committee on September 14th nnade a bold and wise 
move, I feel, when they voted to recomimend to you, the General Body, that 
the President, Vice President, and Secretary of the Associational Youth 
Council be made mennbers of the Executive Committee. They also voted to 
recommend to you that the Promotional Committee be enlarged to include 
more areas of work and to be miore helpful in promoting our programs. 

It has been a wonderful experience of working with each of you this 
year and being co-workers together with Christ Jesus in the work of this 
association.

be established for the Association. Leader Conferences will be held this 
year for specialized training in the nnajor church programs. 

Respectfully submitted, Wayne Adams, Dir. 

MUSIC 

In February, at the Associational Shaping of the 70' s Clinic, we had 
several church Music Directors and pianist who showed much interest 
in the new literature and age group choirs. 

In March the Associational Music Festival was held in Carthage. 
Although the number of church choirs were smaller than the previous year 
the quality of the music was extremely good and showed improvement. 

The Associational Music Workshop was conducted September 15, 16, 
and 17 in Carthage with 87 people attending. Mr. Charles Gatwood of the 
State Baptist Convention, Raleigh was in charge with Mr. Charles Storey of 
Winston-Salem and Mrs. Edmonds Geer of Southern Pines assisting.

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

We have weathered the change and choices that took place in our W.M.U. 
work two years ago. Now we are having to go on in a new set up. Regrouping 
our women and our youth organizations according to age plan and taking on 
new names. We are graded on the level with the new system set up in our 
Sunday Schools. 

Our membership has dropped, much to our disappointment. We realize 
that this happening in the Women's work all over the Southern Baptist 
Convention, Some women wouldn't accept the change and it was rather 
abrupt. More women are in public work. We are thankful for the new 
interest manifested by the women all through our Association, Once we get 
on to this new setup we believe our women will like it better. Once we 
realize it is a flexible program and can work it out to meet the needs of our 
local groups, it will be easier. 

Your Director attended the SHAPING OF THE 70' s Conference in 
Greensboro, January 20 and 21. Then led our own women in the same 
conference for our Association. Also attended the WMU conference during 
World's Mission Week at Fort Caswell in July and the WMU conference at 
Camp Mundo Vista, in September, At this conference, Mrs. Michael Ray, 
Mrs. Thurman Rackley, and Mrs. Robert Bowlin, three of our Associational 
Directors of groups went also. 

Mrs. Lloyd Thomas, the retiring YWA Associational Director had a 
successful banquet for her young ladies. Mrs. Lois Moses showed films 
of the mission work her son helped in while in the army in Vietnam. The 
Cameron Baptist Church sent gifts last Christmas to this group to distribute 
in their work. 

We had a successful Leaders Conference at Carthage, September 20, 1970.

• EVANGELISM 

On February Z3, 1970, an Evangelism Clinic was held with a good 
number attending. Many left the Clinic saying they were both helped and 
blessed. To God be the praise. The Lord Willing, we plan to have another 
Associational Evangelism Clinic on February Z2, 1971. 

It is impossible to report the number of baptisms just now (10/5/70) 
for 1969-70. All of the church letters are not in for this information to be 
gathered. So after the minutes are printed and you get a copy in Decetnber 
please find that information. 

The nnost important statistic of any church is not how many members 
it has, not how many dollars contributed, not how many enrolled in Sunday 
School, not the highest average attendance, not even how many baptisms 
reported. In my opinion the most important statistic is how many lost people 
are enrolled in and are attending Bible study and the worship hours, hearing 
the glorious gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

People who have been redeemed by the precious blood of the Lord Jesus 
Christ and are rightly related to God and His church are the ones whom the 
Holy Spirit will use most effectively in leading souls to faith in Christ. If 
we reach people with the good news of salvation, we must have hearts of 
concern. . . concern that souls are loved, concern that souls go not to hell, 
concern that souls are told of God's love, mercy, forgiveness, eternal 
salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ. 

We need a personal commitment to the Holy Spirit in this God-given 
task. Someone has said, "Every saved soul this side of heaven ought to 
be concerned about every lost soul this side of hell" will be, if we are 
committed to this glorious task. 

Respectfully submitted, Fulton Thomas, Dir-. 
BAPTIST HOSPITAL 



Our Baptist Hospital continues to grow, in spite of its serious problems. 
Physical growth is the result of the long-range development program which 
has already seen the completion of the new power plant, the School of Nursing 
and the Allied Health Building, and the additions to the Medical School. 
Construction on the new patient tower is progressing, after some delays, 
and is expected to be completed by miid - 1972. 

There is continued growth in the quality of patient care provided. There 
is improved equipment in the heart diagnostic center in the fight against 
heart disease; the department of nuclear miedicine continues to make progress 
in the diagnosis and treatment of some of our most dreaded diseases; the 
stroke center renders valuable service in the study and treatment of strokes 
and brain tumors. 

Changes in admission procedures have been made necessary by the 
financial crisis the hospital faces. When a doctor reserves a bed for a 



- 16

patient the admission office contacts the patient to obtain the needed informa- 
tion, including the type and amount of his hospital insurance coverage. 
After estimating the hospital bill and determining the amount of insurance 
coverage, the patient is notified of the difference which he is expected to 
bring when he enters the hospital. An effort is made to counsel with all 
patients who need financial aid and assist them in getting help. 

With all the growth, one thing remains unchanged: the desire and 
determination to care for the needy sick. This has been at the heart of 
the hospital's ministry since it opened in 1923. Last year it ministered 
to 5,Z25 Service Patients for 47,499 days of hospital care, in addition to the 
large number served in the Out-patient Clinics. The free care amounted to 
more than a million dollars beyond what these patients, their insurance, 
and all sponsoring agencies paid. North Carolina Baptist provided $565, 000 
of this amount - $237, 000 through the Cooperative Program and $328, 000 
through the Mothers Day Offering. To date this year 21 churches in our 
Association contributed $2,444.27 of the Mothers Day Fund, thus helping 
the hospital keep faith with its purpose. 

Respectfully submitted, Ernest Stiles, Rep, 

FOUNDATION 

The fact that the North Carolina Baptist Foundation, Inc, has tripled 
its assets during the past eight years is proof that this service arm of the 
Convention has found favor with North Carolina Baptist. 

Since the Foundation was reactivated in 1966, assets have increased 
from $350,000 to more than a million dollars. This includes trust funds 
and real estate . 

THE FOUNDATION advances the Kingdom of God in two major ways: 
by serving individuals and by serving Baptist agencies and institutions. 
This includes the Cooperative, Missions, Higher Education, the Baptist 
Hospital, and Baptist Homes for the Aging, 

SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON TRUSTS AND WILLS 

The Foundation has again this year put a major interest on the making 
of wills. 

Many churches have used the facilities of the Foundation to conduct Will 
Clinics, and reports from these Clinics indicate that they have been very 
successful. 

THE FOUNDATION also has an opportunity to counsel with metny people 
concerning their own wills, and in some instances has provided the information 
and direction necessary for inclusion of Baptist causes in their will. 

THE BAPTIST FOUNDATION has had a most successful year, is on the 
move, and is rendering service to individual Baptists in a concrete way. 

Respectfully subnnitted, Gordon Maddrey 

BIBLICAL RECORDER 



More than ever before. North Carolina Baptist need a dependable source 
of information. It is difficult these days to get an honest and accurate report 
on important issues. 

In some cases, half truths and rumors are circulated, some of them de- 
signed to embarrass and ridicule Baptist. Since it takes so long for truth 
to catch up with error, some of these impressions in people's minds are 
never corrected. This makes progress and unity more difficult. 

For 137 years. North Carolina Baptist have had the Biblical Recorder 
as a dependable source of infornnation. Week by week ir"goes into the honnes 
of nearly 90, 000 families, striving to speak the truth in love. 

- 17 - 



In the past year, the Recorder was pleased to have a part in the election 
of Dr. Carl Bates of Charlotte as president of the Southern Baptist Convention. 
A Recorder editorial endorsing him was considered a factor in his election 
on the first ballot at Denver. It is an honor to have the convention president 
from our state. This is just one example for the influence the Recorder 
has had in the past year. 

Looking to the future, the Recorder promises to continue to fight 
against liquor by the drink, even in the face of strong opposition fromi those 
who are pushing for a greater flow of liquor in our state. If your church 
is not sending the Recorder to every home, try doing this for the coming year 
so your members can receive the full story on the 1971 General Assembly. 

Your church would not think of trying to carry out its mission without 
literature devoted to the Sunday School, Church Training, W.M.U., 
Brotherhood and all other church organizations. The Recorder is just as 
important and should be in the budget just as this literature is. The cost 
is only 4^ a week, a penny less than a post card. Your church is the 
loser by not taking this step. Won't you do it this coming year? 

Respectfully submitted, Marse Grant, Editor 

N. C. BAPTIST HOMES FOR THE AGING 

God has blessed our Homes for the Aging through all of our nineteen 
years, and during the past year in a special way. We acknowledge His 
goodness and thank Him for every manifestation of His Love. We also 
want to express sincere gratitude to our Baptist people for their increased 
love and concern for the 195 dear elderly people to whonn we are ministering 
in our five Baptist Homes - Resthaven, The Hayes Home, and Nursing Care 
Unit, in Winston-Salem; the Albemarle Home, in Albemarle; the Hamilton 
Home, in Hamilton; and the Yanceyville Home, in Yancyville. 

An urgent appeal was made to our Baptist people before our offering 
in February to help us reduce the alarming deficit in the operation of the 
Homies. This plea was heard, and the offering, of $168,349.34, from 
July 1, 1969 through June 30, 1970 from our Baptist Churches, has 
exceeded all other offerings in previous years. How grateful we are for 
this increase. We want to urge our people, however, to continue giving 
liberally to our Homies and to renriember that we are still confronted with 
staggering cost of living and the great need to strengthen the total economy 
of the Homies as we try to move forward in developing and expanding this 
vital ministry. 

Of great interest in our Development Program is the proposed new 
addition to our present Nursing Care Unit. Judge and Mrs. William York, 
of Greensboro, have offered a gift of $80,000.00 to the Homes for this 
purpose, providing the Homes can raise an additional $80,000.00. If this 
proposal is fulfilled, 10 to IZ additional rooms would be made available, 
with accomiodations for 20 to 24 people, and bringing our total nursing care 
capacity to 80 beds. We appeal to Baptist people to pray for the success 
of this very special project in the care of our elderly sick. 

There is no greater security for an older person than that of the Christian 
nurture and love offered in our Baptist Homes, and we thank the Lord, and 
our Baptist people, for this ministry. We shall continue to look to Him, 
and to our people, on behalf of these to whom Christian love means so much, 
in faith that our needs will be supplied. 

Respectfully submitted, Bill Poole, Director

COOPERATIVE PROGRAM 

Hundred of churches, including every size church, increased Cooperative 
Program giving last year. One thousand and seventy-three churches 
increased Cooperative Program giving by ten percent or more over the 
previous year. This increased sharing will enable all to have a greater part 
in the healing of the sick, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting 
the imprisoned and preaching the gospel to the poor. Congratulations are 
in order to every individual and church making this ministry possible. 

Helping churches advance in stewardship and miissions is one of the basic 
aims of your Stewardship-Cooperative Program Chairman, General Board 
Member, Superintendent of Missions, Moderator and the Division of 
Stewardship Promotion of the State Baptist Convention. Do you need help 
with Annuity and Insurance for your pastor and/or other staff personnel, 
Weekend Stewardship Revivals, Growth in Christian Stewardship Progrann, 
The Forward Program, Study and Preaching Program, Tithers Enrollment 
Week, Planning a Budget, Youth in Stewardship Program, Family 
Stewardship Program, Visual Aids, Commiunications, Developing a Special 
Stewardship Program, Principles of Family or Church Budgetting, Setting 
up Better Financial Record Keeping for your Church, or leaflets and other 
information on the Cooperative Program, State Missions, and Family or 
Church Finance? 

The Cooperative Program is the miain channel of supporting World 
Missions, Christian Education, Social Services, and ever increasing State 
Mission Programs. The goal for these causes this year is $7,000,000. 

As dedicated Christian stewards will you try to lead your church: 

1. To use a stewardship program to help subscribe your own church budget? 

2. To increase the percentage of the offering plate dollar given through 
the Cooperative Program? 

The Sandhills Baptist Associational Officers and your Division of 
Stewardship Promotion personel are delighted to offer friendly service to 
aid your stewardship program, Cooperative Program sharing, visual aids 
or annuity request. On your invitation we stand ready to assist in every 
possible way. 

According to the attached green sheet $l6, 034. 75 has been given to the 
Cooperative Program in the first six mionths of 1970 by sixteen churches of 
the Sandhills Baptist Association. We trust that the other churches will 
pray much about this matter and if God leads you to include Cooperative 
Program giving in the coming weeks and nnonths that you and your church 
will give willingly to this important endeavor, 

BAPTIST MEN 

On October ZO, 1969, there was a Baptist Men's Workshop at Carthage. 
Films were shown on the work of Baptist men. Joe Lennon gave an inspiring 
talk. 

Many churches throughout the Association observed Royal Ambassador 
Week the first week of November; and Baptist Men's Day was observed in 
churches January 25, 1970. 

Gene Booker led the conference for Baptist Men and Royal Ambassadors 
during the Shaping of the 70' s Clinic held in February. 

On May 9, sixty-five men attended the Retreat, held at the Cameron 
Baptist Church. Mr. Henry Parker, Director of Morrison School, was the 
principle speaker. The ladies of the church and community provided a 
delicious meal. 

In July, the Baptist Men and Baptist Boys held a Retreat at Cliff Blues' 
Lake. After a time of recreation, fellowship, and picnic meal, Rev. Ernest 
Stiles, Pastor of Vass Baptist Church, brought an inspiring message.
